Although Amharic is the national language of Ethiopia and English its international language, until publication of this book in hardcover there was no concise Amharic-English, English-Amharic dictionary. Students of Amharic as well as visitors to Ethiopia and foreign workers will benefit from this concise dictionary with phonetic transcriptions that allow for its use by those unfamiliar with Amharic script.
“It should be emphasized that this is a modern dictionary, designed to help a student read current material and is abundantly supplied with idiomatic expressions. . . . Invaluable to the student and useful as a handy reference for those who have studied the language for many years.”
